Package Itinerary


In 1328 King Charles Robert elevated Kremnica to the status of a royal town of miners and coin makers. The town reputation for minig gold and silver extented far beyond its borders. The gold thus became the building block upon which hinged the fouding and development of the town, a process that led to the building of coinage mint and influx of experts mostly from the Holy Roman Empire. Mining shafts around Kremnica and Kremnica mines were used not only to drain water but also for exploration. The oldest of the shafts, called Upper „Heritable“ Tunel, is mentioned in written records dated from as early as 1385. Among the valuable historical legacy of coins minted in Kremnica are Kremnica florins, golden ducats and silver toliars with embossed lily of the House of Anjou. The church castle of Kremnica – the name itself, relating to the location of the church, is a rarity. It is situated on an elevated spot and takes pride in its tower, which offers a truly spectacular view of the entire surrounding area. Thanks to its unique acoustics, the church part of the castle hosts the largest clerical as well as secular organ festivals in Slovakia. In Kremnica mines nearby you will find a place considered to be the geographical centre of Europe.
